CLUCKED the book
White takes on the chicken farming industry by looking at its world through the eyes of the chicken. Pickin is a free-range chicken with a serious problem. When a freak accident blows her away from her happy farm, she finds herself in the wicked land of the factory chicken farm. Trying to find a way home, Pickin must travel through the horrors of the poultry sheds. Along the journey, she encounters many of her kind: the abused chicks, a refuge rooster, the jailed battery hens and some busty broiler chickens. But will Pickin find a way back home before she faces the terrifying processing plant? All the whimsy of a children’s book and all the reality of how chickens are treated before they reach our dinner tables.
